Delicious chocolate with caramel notes that is also a force for wildlife conservation.
Krakakoa believe good beans make for great chocolate, and so they partner with local Indonesian farmers to deliver the goodness of their archipelago to consumers. They blend Arenga palm sugar, harvested from the rainforests of Sulawesi, with sustainably grown cacao.
Indulge in the unique flavours and seductive aromas of Indonesia with this bean-to-bar chocolate, crafted with passion and purpose.
Krakakoa 'The Goodness of the Archipelago'.
Founded in 2013 by Sabrina Mustopo together with Simon Wright, Krakakoa was one of the first chocolate makers in Indonesia. And today Krakakoa remains 100% Indonesian made – farmer to bar.
Indonesia is the third largest cocoa producer in the world. But the small cocoa farmers do not earn much. Krakakoa eliminated the middlemen and works directly with the farmers. To ensure sustainable growing methods, quality of the cocoa beans and increase production, the farmers receive training and assistance from Krakakoa where needed. The use of, and exposure to, chemical pesticides and fertilizers is reduced.
Krakakoa pays their farmers a premium price of up to 200% above the prevailing market price. This means a stable and safe future for the farming families, preventing migration to the city, bringing economic prosperity to rural areas.
Indonesian cocoa beans are classified into three categories: Criollo, Forastero, and Trinitario.
Criollo – Recognized as the highest quality cocoa bean in the world, though it yields lower compared to other cocoa bean types.
Forastero – The most commonly used variety of cocoa, making up 90% of the world’s production.
Trinitario – Known as the finest cocoa hybrid in the world. Trinitario cocoa comes in many different varieties, highlighting a good basal cocoa flavor with a hint of fruity or floral taste.
